Pongal festive season is ON with the movie season and way2movies presents you Alex Pandian movie review. Checkout Karthi starrer Alex Pandian review.
Alex Pandian (Karthi) bashes up a group of goons saves Anushka. Alex stays at Santhanam house despite the latter not giving him nod and flirts with his sisters Nikita Thukral, Sanusha, and Akanksha Puri. Alex kidnaps Anushka, daughter of chief minister Alvin Martin (Milind Soman) followed by few baddies instructions for signing a deal with the state government.
Karthi looked good and he has put in loads of energy for the mass entertainer. His efforts in doing the risky stunts in the early half was worth mentioning. However, his work has gone in vain due to the uninteresting screenplay.
Anushka looked gorgeous and she has got a limited role restricted to songs most of the time. She is hardly seen in the first half.
Santhanam is the saving grace for the film. Karthi-Santhanamís scenes have worked well in the first half. However, Santhanamís double-entendres will not entertain family audiences. Milind Soman and Suman are okay. Others were adequate.
Saravananís cinematography is classy and top-class, Devi Sri Prasadís songs are good while the background score is loud at times. Editing is inconsistent and patchy, Surajís direction is just okay while the screenplay is illogical and predictable, dialogues are double meaning ones, though one-liners are entertaining to an extent. Production Values are lavish.
Director Suraj has put in loads of action and entertainment into the film. The first half has good number of comedy entertaining scenes between Karthi and Santhanam but the scenes are totally irrelevant to the storyline while the action part and the villain episodes looked forced. On the other hand, there are many double meaning dialogues in the film.
The main part of the story actually begins in the second half but the narration falls flat. Alex Pandian is made concentrating on the mass audiences but the fights looked out of logic and unrealistic.
Predictable Story, Illogical screenplay, Overdose of action makes Alex Pandian a boring watch
